Resting on a leafy corner on one of Pasadena's most historic and coveted streets is this exquisite Folk Victorian, English Arts and Crafts residence originally built in 1893 by one of Pasadena's earliest Architect's, T.W. Parkes. Through the front gate and along the brick path to the front entrance, one feels as if they've entered a private park, with flower gardens, fruit trees, and an expansive lawn. The airy front porch leads into the formal foyer. This lower floor features a large living room with fireplace, multiple windows allowing the room to fill with light from the afternoon sun, and French doors leading to a second front porch. The formal dining boasts an original exposed wood and beam ceiling with French doors to the rear patio. Over the years the home has received many upgrades and additions, including the adjacent renovated kitchen with Viking appliances, customs cabinets, and a breakfast bar that adjoins the generous family room with gaming area, fireplace, and additional access to the rear grounds. In addition, there is also a large laundry/crafts room and a bathroom. On the second floor is the spacious primary bedroom suite with walk-in closet and two additional bedrooms and a bath. The stairs to the third floor lead to a bonus space perfect for an art studio, home office, or an additional bedroom. The rear grounds include a generous patio area, multiple gardens, sitting areas, and a potting shed. To the rear of the property is a large two car garage with a second-floor guest house. The guest house includes a large front balcony that leads into the living quarters that feature a studio/bedroom, kitchenette, and bath. This gated estate is truly a Pasadena treasure. Convenient to Old Pasadena shopping and restaurants, the Norton Simon Museum, schools, Rose Bowl activities, and of course the annual Rose Parade.
